Zeppelin Systems a global leader in plant engineering for the handling of high-quality bulk materials, they provide technology and services to the plastics procesisng applications.
Zeppelin have recently announced the take over of MTI Mischtechnik, whose shares were up for sale in October 2020 following insolvency proceedings. The portfolio ideally complements the Zeppelin Mixing Technologies division, as the two companies predominantly serve different market segments – both in terms of the focus of the technologies and global coverage. In addition to the portfolio, the know-how of the MTI employees also plays a major role for Zeppelin. Therefore, the former MTI team at the Detmold site will continue MTI’s future business under new management.
The Zeppelin Mixing Technologies division has been setting standards in mixing technology for years and impresses with its solutions. Therefore, this branch has developed into an important pillar of the company. At the Kassel site, a team of experts researches, develops and manufactures mixers according to customer requirements. With its modern on-site R&D center, Zeppelin Systems carries out industrial-scale tests to optimize processes and procedures for the production of sensitive raw materials. One reason for the company’s success is not only its many years of expertise in process engineering, but also its high product quality, which customers value highly.
This transaction will create an even stronger supplier with a global network locally focused on customer needs and driving new technologies. “With this acquisition, we are further expanding our market position in mixing technology. This is a big step that I am very pleased about,” said Rochus Hofmann, Managing Director of Zeppelin Systems. “MTI has great products and an excellent service concept that will benefit us and our customers,” Hofmann added.
The portfolio includes heating, cooling and universal mixers for plastics processing and chemical applications. This ideally complements Zeppelin Systems’ product range. “Since the mixer solutions from MTI and Zeppelin are largely used in different industries, the overlap of the portfolio is small,” Hofmann explains.
For the market, this offers above all positive synergy effects, as both companies are experts in the field of mixing technology. With over 70 years of experience in plant engineering and a high level of competence in the individual process steps, Zeppelin Systems offers not only individual product solutions, but complete concepts – from plant engineering to implementation.
